‘They’ll put out their narrative, and we’ll put out our counter-narrative’

CLEVELAND – As the Democratic Party prepares for its presidential-nominating convention, Dinesh D’Souza’s “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” opens nationwide this weekend on 1,500 screens.“
They’ll put out their narrative, and we’ll put out our counter-narrative,” D’Souza told WND in an interview at the Republican Convention.
The Democrats’ narrative is that racism, particularly from the right and the Republican Party, keeps blacks in poverty.
But D’Souza, in the movie and a companion book of the same name, takes viewers through the history of slavery and the Jim Crow era, arguing that it’s the Democrats who need to own up to a racist past.
D’Souza said the reaction so far to the film “is tumultuous” after opening early in three theaters and screening in Cleveland July 17, a day before the Republican Convention opened.
“Hillary’s America” has the highest per screen average of just about any movie in the country, certainly of any documentary,” he said. “But we’re also beating a whole bunch of Hollywood big movies per screen.”
D’Souza said the way for the film to reach a broader audience is “for a lot of Republicans and conservatives to go see this movie.”
